Comment on the following statement:
| TV viewing is one of the most popular leisure pastimes among children. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that watching television is the most popular activity among children whereas others say that computer games are more popular.
I think that watching television is really popular indeed. First of all, it’s the easiest way for parents to have some rest. They run a cartoon and go to do their things. Second, children like watching television. There are a lot of children programs nowadays. Children also learn about new things through watching children channels.
At the same time there are people who say that playing computer games are more popular. This activity is interactive that’s why it grips children’s consciousness way stronger.
In my opinion these people have a point. These are actually two the most popular activities among children. Nevertheless, watching television is the easies way to occupy children’s attention. It’s for free while you have to pay for good computer games. Computer games might be addictive due to this a lot of parents restrict their children from playing them.
In conclusion I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support that watching television is the most popular against the ones that support computer games, we'll see that the facts that support television outweigh those against.
